What is the best sealer for pool patio concrete or paving that is not slippery?

If you are a homeowner lucky enough to have a pool, you know how enjoyable it can be. Although some maintenance is involved, pools can create a lot of fun family times. The hard surfaces around your pool can be just as essential to maintain as the pool itself.

There are a wide variety of materials used for pool patios or decks. Concrete or pavers are a common type of pool patio surface. A concrete or paver patio around the pool is expected to be cleaned and sealed on a regular basis to maintain its cleanliness. Every couple of years is typically the average for cleaning and resealing. Doing so will protect the area from harsh pool chemicals, sun fading, acid rain, erosion, and freeze/thaw damage.

My Top Sealer for Pool Brick Pavers

Finding the best sealer for pool patio concrete or pavers will ensure the area lasts long. Choose a sealer that is non-gloss to reduce the chance of creating a slippery surface. Being around a pool obviously means that wet feet will be walking and running across the surface. Making it too slippery with multiple applications of a glossy sealer is the last thing you want to do.

However, some sealers fall into that category if you want to give the pool patio a wet look without the gloss. Sealers like SuperSeal M, Supreme Shield SB-600, or Surebond SB-6000 are great choices. These sealers penetrate the surface to create a barrier of protection without the glossy finish. Some Satin and Semi-Gloss sealers will work as well as long as they do not seal the surface 100%. These would be styrene acrylic-based sealers such as SuperSeal25.

There are also pool patio sealers that will not alter the appearance of the concrete or pavers but still give the surface adequate weather protection. It really comes down to personal preference, but creating a non-slippery surface that is water-repellent is the goal. Sealing your pool patio concrete or pavers with the best sealer possible is good insurance to protect your investment. It will also ensure you maintain your outdoor living space so it is there to enjoy for many years.

Thank you. I live in MA and the specs say it cannot be shipped to me due to low VOC regulations. “This product cannot be shipped to the following states with Low VOC Regulations: AZ CA CT DC DE IL IN MA MD ME NH NJ NY OH PA RI VA VT”

Do you have a different recommendation for me?

Hi. I am trying to seal my pool pavers on y own for the first time. I’ve done so much homework my head is goinf to explode. SO here is my wish list; Shiny but not slippery glossy; spray on, no mixing. And of course the winning lottery numbers. I am on the west coast of central Florida. Lots of sun and salt, little worry about the cold. Can you help a rookie out? Thanks!

OK, thanks. But I guess being a novice I did not make myself clear. I cannot use a glossy finish because I’ve been told it is too slippery. I am looking for that “wet look” in a non-glossy spray. Do you think that exists? And where are my winning lottery numbers? HA! Thanks!

I am getting a pool put in with a Tremron paver deck with polymeric sand. I am interested in getting a non-slip sealer that will cover the entire deck including the coping. Should I just apply Super Seal M? It would be nice to give it wet look too but I do not want risk it getting slippery.

Please advise on what products you think best fit this application. Thanks very much.

I have stamped concrete around my pool that has been sealed at least three times. The sealer seems to fade and turn white after about 8 to 9 months. I am in Arizona not sure if the constant sun has anything to do with that. Any recommendations on what sealer to use considering there may be several layers of old sealer on the concrete?
